Angela Bassett: Queen of the Screen

September 2019

Across one month we screen the best films of an actor who has an undeniable, almost regal, screen presence, and who’s captivated generations of audiences.

Introduction by season programmer Jan Asante

Monty Python at 50


Bassett is one of the most captivating screen stars of her generation, with an illustrious career spanning over 30 years, traversing every genre from intimate indie drama (Boyz n the Hood) to heart-stopping musical biopic (What’s Love Got to Do with It) to dystopian, action-fuelled thriller (Strange Days). Bassett’s regal presence and undeniable versatility have come to define her signature star power, and she’s firmly established herself as an iconic leading lady. An electrifying character actor, director and producer, she’s also seen as one of the finest and most beloved artists to have emerged from the early 90s wave of new American cinema.
